hey where's everybody okay we can't start this video without any coffee here result what are you walking back to a new video on the channel so today's video is going to be about how you can make your very own Wix website from scratch as a beginner I'm gonna walk you through step by step process from creating an account to picking your theme to editing your website and walking you through all the different functionalities that the Vic's editor is offering and also give you some tips and tricks on things you can do to improve your website overall and make it look good for yourself and your customers if you want to follow this guide make sure you use the link down in the description to get to the page that I'm currently on let's just get started on this tutorial so the first thing you'll see when you land on this page is just a simple start now it's not going to be much harder than that so just go ahead and click start now or I can go ahead and read on all the different functionalities that Wix offers but since you're watching this video you probably already know what VIX offers so you're probably already decided that you want to go for Wix as your website builders so let's just go ahead and click star now I'm already gonna be logged in so what's gonna happen to you is that you'll you'll have to create your own account and once your account is created you'll be presented with the different themes as you can prick form so what you'll be presented with once you have created your account is this display right here so it's what kind of website you want to build what this really is just questioning you so you will get a customized theme depending on what kind of company you're running so let's say you're running a online store you're gonna get different themes presented to you because these themes are usually more customized towards your goals and what you're doing within your business but either way all themes in in Wix can be designed to your needs so even though you go for a fitness fee because you like how it looks you can still customize it to fit whatever company you're doing so if you're into beauty and wellness you can change that fitness beam to fit your company so it doesn't matter what you pick here to be honest it's just gonna present you with themes that are more aligned with whatever you're working with but you can always change this thing you itself to look more aligned with what you're doing so what I'm gonna do right here is just go for a photography that sounds good and then we are going to see all these different themes and to be honest most of these themes look very good some of the themes that are a lot older are not going to be as good because they are using the old Vic's editor and you can clearly tell which websites are a bit outdated and if you're not really into website design maybe you're not fully aware I would recommend you to stick with the top ones it usually a lot better compared to what you find in the bottom so let's just find a theme we want to use for our website another's page right here you can see that you can change so depending on what you're doing once again to find more aligned themes with what you're doing so if you just want to do a simple promote promotional page you can use go right here to find those themes if you're doing haircuts you got them right here and just to show you here you go all the themes for barbers and hairdressers which are usually pretty good to give you a good start if you're not very into design I recommend you to go with these themes are customized for your business but if you can't find a theme that aligns with your business just go with a theme and then customize it towards your need we're actually gonna go for hairdressers let's say I'm a barber I like this theme right here it looks good so what you can do is either view it or edit I'm gonna go ahead and you just to give you a preview of what this page is gonna look like so you got gentlemen's barber shop if you click this one right here you'll scroll down on the page our story looks very good services you can see prices are right away gallery what you can switch this out with later is just switch this Instagram feed will probably look a lot better more social you have the social proof from people following your page people can click here to go to your Instagram there's a lot of different changes you can make whatever works yeah I really like this theme right here so I decided I want to go with it so what I'm going to do is just click on edit this site and as it says right here price free almost all themes with index is going to be three themes some of them are going to require you to get a premium plan and I do recommend you to get a premium plan but let's go ahead and click Edit this site it is loaded you'll get get started would you do Wix website you don't have to watch that and you can do so if you want you but this guide will help you through all your needs so right here you have how your editor is going to look like and you'll probably be a bit confused in the start there's a lot of different buttons to click on there's a lot of different elements you can use so what I recommend you to just do is just take your time to get used to all the different elements it's definitely going to take you a lot of time to do so but I'm gonna walk you through the most important parts of your editor which is going to be menus and pages right here on the side here's going to be all your different pages on your website and if you want to go to these specific pages it's not harder than just clicking on it and says this website right here it's just a one-page website so what that means is that the website is not going to have different pages but all the content is going to be on the same page so instead of having home and then when you click to about you're going to go to a new page what's gonna happen it's just you're just gonna scroll down to that specific section this is very good from a from a maintenance standpoint you're not gonna have to edit the website a lot but the negative side of things is that it's not going to be as SEO friendly since you cannot optimize for these different sections if you don't know what SEO is is how you optimize your website to get founded in Google but let's not get into that right now if you're interested in that I have more content on my channel so check those out if you want to learn more about vix SEO so the most important part to think about here is that you have your home you have your about services gallery in contact these are your different sections for this website right here you have the three dots we have your settings as you all soldier will share you can rename the sections you can copy you can get it where you can hide it if you hide it it's not going to show up in the menu right up here so it's not going to show up but since this is a one-page website it's still gonna be people are still going to be able to find it this specific page because it's not really a page is just a section of the one page so you're just not really going to change a lot the only thing is gonna change it's just hide it from the menu up here page transitions this is how it's gonna look when you go from one page to another it's not very important for this specific websites this is still just a one pager I'll usually pick none for this one because you're gonna make your website load a lot faster so I'm gonna go ahead and prick none the next section in your editor is gonna be the page background this is going to change the whole back room for the whole website you don't have to change these you can just change it automatically usually people go for a specific color if you have add videos as a background it's just gonna load a lot slower so if you have like images that are super big and requires a lot of a download speed for the user it's just gonna make your website super slow so if you're using images make sure you compress your images if you want to learn how you compress your images I have videos on that as well so my channel has everything you need to know about the whigs but we're not going to get into that is a whole different process usually just keeping one color and then you can add your images on top of that instead next section is going to be all your elements it's with the plus sign you got right here and right here it might get confusing as a first-time user but it's pretty straightforward so you have your text you have images gallery vector art shape interactive and so on what all of these sections have is if you go under each section you have different titles and paragraphs you can use and how you use them is basically but just grabbing it and dropping it whatever you want it on your website so let's say I wanted to add this heading right here that's how I would do it and then you can just resize it dragging the box right here to whatever you wanted to look like and if you want to edit the look of the text you just go ahead and click Edit text edit text you'll see the menu right here you can change your font you can make it bold you can make it italic underline it change the color change the highlight background a background color of the text you can link it somewhere so let's say I want to link it to an anchor let's say I want to link it to gallery so what this is gonna do when people click on this text right here it's going to take you to the gallery section of the website but this text we don't want it for this specific page it doesn't look that good so what I'm gonna do is just right click it and delete you can also click delete on your desktop but you guys are not able to see it so I'll just do it like that so you have all your different elements you can use right here and some of these are super useful some of them are less useful some of them are going to be good for your specific niche and some of them are not gonna fit you at all so if you're doing if you your company's doing a lot of YouTube videos or if you have a lot of video marketing material you want to showcase on your website let's say you have a you're a very medium photographer and you want to show off your work this is gonna be a great way of highlighting this on your website so you can either guess the video upload it directly to your Wix website or you can just link your YouTube video a dailymotion or Facebook videos and have them directly linked to your website this is gonna save a lot of space on your website because you're gonna be limited on how much you can upload to your specific website so if you use YouTube or another website to link your videos is gonna save you a lot of space on your website music this is usually not very good unless you are an artist if you are an artist this is a good way of having your let's say your spotify connected to your website so people can listen to your music directly there yeah or if you want to sell your music this is also going to be a great way of highlighting that you have your socials you can add your link to your Facebook have your Facebook feed Twitter Pinterest YouTube whatever you want you can get it right here contact form this is how people contact you and much much more men use lightbox content manager blog store bookings members and my designs I haven't seen this part before so let's go ahead and skip that one for now the next section is gonna be your Wix app market so in the vixx app market you can get apps that are some of them are going to be produced by vixx themself and some of these apps are going to be made by third-party developers and so what that means is that some of these apps are going to be paid for you're gonna have to pay for apps usually they have a free version and the free version is going to be a lot worse but some of these functionalities that you can add your website is going to be super useful depending on your business so if you need a specific functionality for your website go ahead and go to the vixx app market and just look for whatever you need or search for it so let's say I wanted to add my Instagram feed if I search for Instagram I have Instagram feed right here and here you can also clearly see who is producing these apps so this app right here is by Wix and this is by a third-party developer now which is super useful if you want to stick with only apps that are made by Wix usually these apps are a lot more up-to-date are usually more updated frequently and they don't have as much bugs some apps you'll find on the Wix app store are very old since VIX is definitely a a website builder that has been around for a very long time so what that means is there a lot of apps that are still from let's say 2012 they're not being updated so they still look very old and are not very good use on your website or they could just overall make your website super slow so make sure you implement these plugins whenever you need them but if you notice it's a significant change on your website let's say load speed just get rid of that specific app and how you add this app super easy just click Add and then you will get the provider way let's see if it loads here we go so here we go the Instagram feed what you can do and that is just go to settings and then you can correct your Instagram here and it's going to show your images you can also change the layout so if you want to be a slider collage grid and you can change how many images per row how many rows you want how much spacing you want between the images there's a lot of different elements you can change just within this specific element this is almost everything awake so everything works you can go in-depth how you want to change it you can change the language of this specific feed how you want to display design and so much more so make sure you look into how you can assign each and every element this element right here what we're going to do is delete it so instead of doing this I'm just going to click the lead on my dashboard and now it's gone if we go back to our menu we have looked at apps so now we're going to look at media so media right here is where you can find either free images or videos from works you can upload your own videos or images or you can also add from Facebook Instagram Google Drive and Google photos they also have shorter stock images right here these are gonna cost you money obviously and videos as well but these are great to have right in the store usually what I find is these Shutterstock images within Wix are usually a lot cheaper compared to what they are in Charter stock itself if you go back to our menu we have start a blog so this if you want to add a blog to your website blogs are super useful for most companies blogs are gonna make it your website a lot more SEO friendly you can make blogs you can blog post around specific topics which makes your website ranked under that specific topic so let's say we are a barber in New York what we will be able to do is make a blog post talking about the barbers in New York and that way our website could have the potential of ranking very high in Google when people search for barbers in New York it's a lot more advanced than that and if you want to learn more about SEO and how to optimize your Wix website for SEO make sure you check out my channel and I'll have a lot more content on that specific thing if you go down to the last thing in our menu it's gonna be online bookings this is good if you are a local company offering so if your electrician plumber if you are a barber so in this case what I could do is offer bookings so people can book their appointment online instead of having to call in text or whatever you do so this is definitely gonna be a great function if you need those specific needs so let's take a look at the top so if you notice at the top it's very easy to change to mobile if you click this button right here you'll see how your website let's give this you'll see how your website is gonna look once you're on mobile so you can change everything right here just as you change on your desktop view and what you change right here is not going to change what happens to your desktop view but if you delete an element itself it's going to be deleted on the desktop but let's say you make the text itself smaller on mobile it's not going to change the size of the text on desktop but if you remove this whole image on mobile it's going to get removed from the desktop as well I would recommend you to always edit your website in the desktop view once you're finished you can go ahead to switch to mobile and then optimize it so if it's mobile a lot better I remember that mobile is super important so make sure your mobile version looks good and most of your visitors are going to come from mobile and people get super fresh you know this yourself when the website is not optimized for mobile or it just doesn't work or takes too long to load so make sure you are on top of things when it come to your mobile website and but also make sure that your desktop is working great as well then we're going to have our site so what we can do here is if you're safe we can preview our website feedback you can publish site history so you can see the changes you made in the past so if you did something wrong instead of clicking control set what you can do is go to site history you can go back and see what has been done in in the past yeah you can duplicate your site you can also transfer it to someone else or move the whole site itself to trash so if you don't want to keep it just move it to trash where you can exit editor here as well the next tab is going to be settings here you can connect your domain you can get a mailbox so this is going to be a Gmail a mailbox with your own domain so let's say it is Gustav at New York barber comm that is gonna be my email address here you can also upgrade so let's talk about that real quick so let's click on upgrade and I'll show you guys the pricing for your website so this is gonna be the pricing for your website depending on what you need usually what I recommend is going for the combo package the combo package is gonna have everything you need to make a website if you need extra functionalities the unlimited and VIP is going to be the better option but the reason why combo is usually the best starting point is that it offers everything you need you can connect your domain and you also don't have the Vic's ads which is super important if you're gonna website and you see a ad for Wix on your website he's not gonna look super great and if you get to connect the main package you're still gonna have Vic's ads on your website you were able to connect your domain but you still don't have those mix ads so I would recommend you to go for a combo package and in case you feel like you need to upgrade you can upgrade it anytime which is not a hassle at all you just click upgrade or you can go down a package as well if you feel like you're using a package did you don't really need you can just go back and change whatever subscription you want and then again if you want to run an e-commerce website there's going to be different packages for you and I would also recommend it to go with a business basic package but you can read about all the different details what's what's offered within these tabs but the basic package is usually a good starting point for the e-commerce side of things so start with the basic package if you feel the need to upgrade you can go ahead and upgrade your package something worth mentioning here is that Wix offers 14 day money-back guarantee which I find super useful so let's say I make a website and then a few days later I realize oh no I don't want to continue with this project you can just send an email and request your money back worked every time for me so that is not a problem at all and usually this is just a great security in case you're not sure if you're gonna use Wix or not or you're not sure if your project is gonna look how you want it to this is just security for you to get to know that to get to know the editor and things before you are 100% sure you want to keep your website but let's head back to our editor so in our editor right here we were in settings so upgrade you can get found on Google so Wix has a super useful functionality where it guides you through how you can optimize your website very basically and how to get farming Google this is of course very basic but super useful if you are a beginner then you can change your favicon and what that is is this the eye icon on top here you can see for every website so if you go to different websites they have different favicons you can change that on your website usually you want to put your logo and you can put something else let's say you're selling ice cream so you can put a small ice-cream icon up here just make something just to make your website stand out in someone's browser settings so this is info you can change your address and everything else your phone number and all of those funny things social sharing really needed tracking analytics is going to be the part where you can go ahead and add your Facebook tracking Facebook pixel you can add your Google Analytics tracking and whatever else you want to add to your website you do it right here roles and permissions if you want to add multiple users to be able to edit your website if you're running a company and you want your someone else to be able to go ahead and add blog posts or edit content you can just add them right here and they will get the access to do so accessibility so you can lock your website mobile-friendly image sharpening multilingual so if you want to have your website in more than one language if your international ecommerce website this is super useful so people can read your website in their language this functionality is right here and then error page 404 this is the page that's going to show up if someone goes in your website and comes to an error page so you can make your error page look a lot better and say whoops sorry this page doesn't exactly care to come back to the home page or something like that my dashboard you go back to your Wix dashboard tools these are earlier heading tools so you have your tool bar which is the tool bar right here this is usually super good if you want to place something on your website and you want to be sure that the thing you're placing is in the middle or it's exactly this many pixels away from something else this is a little bit more advanced you can definitely use it a lot but if you're just starting out this is not going to be super useful for you but I recommend you to get used to it and then tools you also have rulers or ruler is going to be this thing on top here and on this side and what you can do is let's say you want to add something right in the middle you can add this thing right here we're gonna tell you exactly where the middle is and make it a lot easier to understand where you're gonna place things the more tools you have your grid lines red lines are super useful if you're a beginner it tells you where you should play it play stuff and where you shouldn't so I recommend it to keep on and snap to objects this is also very good so what will happen let's see you drag something you can detect that it's exactly in the middle so it'll stop you a little bit so it snap it snap in place and that's just gonna help you overall to make your website look a lot better but if you feel like it's getting annoying if you're getting more advanced usually you want to keep this off because you already know where you want to place it and all of a sudden it's somewhere else so it's up to you if you want to keep it on or off and I will try to keep it on in the beginning and once you're more advanced you can just turn it off then you have dev mode that mode is going to be the more advanced part here you can change things in the code if not tracking here as well and it's gonna be a lot more advanced this way and so if you're just starting out with your website this part is not gonna be for you once you're getting used to things you can head into dev mode and change things right there help here's just all the help functionalities so let's say you want to help on how to do something specific yeah you wax forum is usually super functional for that so if you need an help from thanks make sure you check out the forums and see if someone else has asked it in the past and is it gonna help you out if you're getting stuck somewhere okay so let's get into the website itself so let's say our barber shop is called in your barber I can just click this tax change the text itself if I feel like the size of the text itself is too big I can just resize it make sure we did that and we can resize it like that and I feel like that it looks pretty good if you want to change this text you do the same thing double click on it or click once and click Edit and don't you just able to edit the text however you like it yes so let's say I want to change the color of this to blue I can do so doesn't really look that good so we're gonna keep it white and I want to change these those to dogs because that sounds fun dogs New York then let's say you want to change the top your menu up here maybe you want to make sure that these social icons are linking to your Facebook and Twitter and Instagram you set social links then you can go ahead and change the link right here to your to your Instagram so let's say your handle is New York dog barber you know you click done and then it's gonna link to that specific Instagram account same thing with images you click on the image you can change the image right here then you can just import your own images or you can use media from Wix which is free images from VEX you can also get Shutterstock and unsplash images unsplash images are going to be free images you can search within here so the search barber let's say i want this image right here just click it choose image and there we go we change the image if you're not satisfied with what you just did you can either click the undo button right here on top or just click control sad well let's click undo then we'll get right back to what we just did if you want to change the text right here same thing at attacks if you want to change this text just click edit text it's just as easy as that once you're finished editing your website and made it your own is super important that it sticks out and actually feels like it's under your own website it's it's fitting with your logo if it's everything accordingly once it is finished just click publish and your website is going to be live if you want to preview it before you publish it just click preview and that is gonna be how your website looks live once you're finally done once you're satisfied with how it looks just click back to editor click publish and your website is going to go live here you can also connect your specific domain because you're not going to want my Wix site before your actual domain so if you want it domain I recommend you to use GoDaddy you can get a domain with Wix as well the issue here is that you're gonna be locked in with Wix so if you want to change your domain name later it's gonna be a lot harder so I would definitely recommend you to use GoDaddy they have very cheap domains and then you can just connect your domain from GoDaddy directly to your Wix account and almost likely make a video on this as well in the future so if you want more videos like this make

👁 First of all, thank you for watching! Excellent job for taking things into your own hands and choosing to build yourself a website. Wix offers a useful way to learn how to make a website, but let’s face it, none of us was born with built-in knowledge on how to use the Wix Editor. The learning curve is short and sweet, but I nonetheless want to help you as a new user to settle into things smoothly.
